Take a bite out of this! Ramadan Series: Day13

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Ramadan is the Month of The Qur’an
God began revealing the Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) during Ramadan in the year 610 C.E. The Holy Qur’an is known undoubtedly as “the most-read book in the world” for it is a book that is so often read, re-read and memorized, and all in its original language, Arabic. In Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to focus as much time as possible on reading, listening to and understanding the teachings of the Glorious Qur’an.

Take a bite out of this! Ramadan Series: Day12

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Purity of both thought and action are emphasized whilst fasting. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: “He who does not desist from obscene language and acting obscenely (during the period of fasting), Allah has no need of his hunger and thirst.” The Prophet (pbuh) also said: “Fasting is not only from food and drink, fasting is to refrain from obscene (acts). If someone verbally abuses you or acts ignorantly toward you, say (to them) ‘I am fasting; I am fasting.’”

    Thank you for reminding us about the true meaning of Ramadan. Those who show ignorance of the Prophet reveal their lack of wisdom about the nature of the divine and purpose within each one of us.

Take a bite out of this! Ramadan Series: Day11

Friday, August 12, 2011

All Muslims, from the age of puberty who are physically and mentally well should observe fasting during the month of Ramadan. Islam is a practical way of life and does not place hardship on those for whom the fast would be too difficult. The sick and those traveling may defer their fast until their illness or journey is over. Pregnant women and nursing mothers may also postpone the fast. The very old, who are too weak to fast, and those who have a permanent illness that prevents them from fasting, are excused from fasting. They may feed a needy person for every day missed, if they can afford to do so. The mentally ill are also exempt from fasting.

    I was not aware of the details on feeding a needy person... What a demonstration of the spirit and intent of the heart that can be exercised during Ramadan.

Take a bite out of this! Ramadan Series: Day10

It is common to have one meal (known as Suhoor), just before sunrise and another (known as Iftar), directly after sunset. The breaking of the fast (Iftar) usually consists of dates, following the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Ramadan strengthens the community: Muslims invite one another for the Iftar meals, and thereby create concern and friendship among neighbors, families and friends. Many people also take Iftar to the mosque and share it with the wider community, especially the poor and needy.

    The abbreviation pbuh is short for ~ peace be upon him.

Muslims use this expression any time they say or hear a Prophets name (may peace be on all of them).

Fasting the month of Ramadan is the third of the Five Pillars of Islam. The others are declaration of faith (Shahadah), prayer (Salah), charitable-giving (Zakah), and the pilgrimage to Makkah (Hajj). Fasting, together with the other pillars, forms the foundation of the faith. It instills in the individual a feeling of closeness to God and a desire to do good deeds at all times.

    I agree with SisterWinnie. Thank you, AhmarRose, for taking the time to put a practical face to Ramadan and to the spirit of Islam.

I feel shy to ask practicing sisters and brothers about Islam; this series has renewed my determination to be more tolerant and to challenge those who seem unwilling to include Islam as a great faith.
